However, Gavras made up for it with his third scoring strike of the half when he hit Channing Meyer down the middle of the field for a 23-yard score.
North decided to keep it on the ground on its fourth touchdown drive. After big runs by Bryan Payne and Sipe, Meyer waltzed into the end zone from three yards out.
Gavras threw a fourth touchdown pass in the first half to give the Timberwolves a 35-0 half-time lead. The competitive part of the game was over.
“It was a big deal to get off to a fast start,” Gavras said. “Obviously, it’s their senior night and homecoming. We understood that. We knew we just had to come out and do our thing and put it on them fast and early. And have some fun.”
Even though North played without linebacker Jordan Evans, it had no problem shutting down the Eagles’ offense. It held the home team to 46 yards in the first half.
North will not learn who it has in the first round of the playoffs until after today’s games. But regardless of who they matchup with, they believe.
“These guys come to work everyday,” Standley said. “They have gotten better each week. If we continue to do that then we are going to put ourselves in position to continue to play.”
